Criminals Often Have Very Interesting Stories

Criminals are sometimes, very interesting personalities. High profile, prolific crooks are usually the most interesting. There was a great piece over at the Dallas Observer that profiled a serial bank robber known as the "Handsome Guy Bandit" who was active in the Dallas area in 2011. Anna Merlan included this bit in her story on him:
"He was getting cocky," Wetherington says. During one robbery, he even asked the teller to pass along a message. 
"I know you know who I am," he told her. "Tell the FBI I said 'Hi.'"
With a 35 year federal sentence and pending state Attempted Capital Murder charges, he probably won't be able to see any movie made about his criminal career anytime soon.
